    According to reference tables I have (not being a Mercedes expert, to first be honest!), I show anywhere from 7.5 - 9.5 quarts of fluid in the transmission.

    If you put 9 quarts in, it would seem that the transmission should operate. It could be overfilled, potentially, however.

    Or, if the transmission was operated without fluid for a period of time at all -- damage could have been sustained.
